Ivypaw is a ThunderClan apprentice, under the mentorship of Cinderheart. She has blue eyes, and is a white-and -gray tabby she-cat. Her sister is Dovepaw, the third cat in the prophecy, and her parents are Birchfall and Whitewing. Firestar is her great-grand uncle. According to Erin Hunter and The Fourth Apprentice, she is jealous of her sister's abilities and thinks that Dovepaw seeks attention for them. Her jealousy may lead her down a dark path... She is seen on the cover of Fading Echoes. On the former cover, she had jade eyes and was a orange tabby, but now she is gray tabby and white with blue eyes when the illustrator corrected it. It was revealed by Erin Hunter that her warrior name will be Ivypool.
